“Glade of Fairy Tales” – a unique children’s museum of sculptures on a fairy-tale theme in the open air. Located in one of the most beautiful corners of the Southern coast of Crimea, in the picturesque surroundings of Yalta near the Wuchang-Su waterfall. Initially, it was folk master Pavel Bezrukov, who chose the forest at the foot of the quaint rock of Stavri-Kaya and founded a sculptural park in 1960. Today the exposition of the museum consists of more than 300 sculptures. On them worked by folk craftsmen and professional artists not only from Yalta, but also other cities of Crimea, Moscow, Pervouralsk, Yerevan, Vilnius, and others. In the hands of talented craftsmen a simple tree, ordinary clay, cold metal and concrete turned into characters of fairy tales, epics, legends and myths.

In addition, they have fun in the Kingdom of Curved Mirrors, laugh at the presentation of clowns and marvel at the magic of conjurers.
